Written & Performed by Nicolle Nattrass
Director TJ Dawe
Jessie Award-nominated playwright and actress – and mother – Nicolle Nattrass, courageously shares her ode to motherhood in this witty and profoundly moving one-woman play. In turns both hilarious and heart-breaking, she chronicles her journey of becoming a new mother at the age of 40.
From initial idyllic dreams of motherhood and the pressure to choose a stylish diaper bag, to her real struggle to become the“perfect mom,” her years of sleep deprivation, and her own postpartum experience, Nicolle uses humour (and 80s music) to present important realities that are rarely discussed. The show is recommended for all new moms, old moms, dads, parents, grandparents – and anyone who has a mom.
“Nattrass is a big-hearted and fearlessly vulnerable performer” that will entertain everyone who has a mother – but Mamahood is especially “a gift” for “mothers who’ve believed themselves to be alone in falling short of ideals.” (Georgia Straight)
